There are different types of introductions that we come across in our daily lives. Sometimes we meet unknown persons and want to speak a few words or you may want to start a conversation. But you don’t know how to start a conversation with a stranger or an unknown person. So what do we do? Very simple. Practice and Follow these steps confidently.
- Voluntary Introduction:
1st Person : Hai! I’m Prasad and You?
2nd Person : Hai! Mr.Prasad I’m Suresh
1st Person : I’m glad to meet you Mr.Suresh
2nd Person : Me too Mr.Prasad
Just practice these four lines with your friend or family member and you will gain a little confidence to start a conversation.
Prasad : Hai! I am Prasad and You?
Suresh : Hai Mr. Prasad I’m Suresh
Prasad : I’m glad to meet you Mr. Suresh
Suresh : Me too Mr. Prasad. By the way, what do you do Mr. Prasad?
Prasad : I am into English Training

Prasad : I would love to help you. By the way, what is your academic qualifications Mr.Suresh?

MEETING A PERSON FOR THE SECOND TIME

2nd Person : Good Morning Mr. Prasad
1st Person : How are you Mr. Suresh?
2nd Person : I’m fine thankyou Mr.Prasad
1st Person : Its nice to see you again Mr. Suresh

- Group Introduction:
Many a times, we may get opportunities to be in groups when we attend Seminars or Workshops or Meetings or Conferences or Interviews. In such cases, the person leading the Programme will want to know something in brief about you and so, he or she asks you to tell a few things about yourself. All you have to do is to tell your Name, your Designation, the Place you come from and the organisation that you are representing.
e.g. Good Morning friends. My name is Prasad and I am an English Trainer from Bangalore working in Royal Institute of Spoken English (RISE).
In the above sentences, you see the name, designation, the place from and the organisation that you represent in bold letters.
NOTE: Don’t start telling your complete Bio-data. He or she is not interested in your life history, just these four points will do and you should remember that there are other persons who have to introduce themselves. You can’t take all the time.
- Third Person Introduction:
In this type of introduction, 2 persons are already well acquainted. The first person wants to introduce a third person to the second person. How do we do that? Very easy. Just follow these steps.
1st Person (Prasad) : Mr.Suresh, please meet my friend Ms. Shamna.
2nd Person (Suresh) : Hai Ms. Shamna, I’m glad to meet you.
3rd Person(Shamna) : Me too Mr. Suresh.
- Self introduction:
Self Introduction is commonly done only during interviews. The interviewer is interested to know more about you and he also wants to check the fluency level of your command of English. Hence, you need to talk more about yourself. You have to cover these points – Name, age, academic qualifications, additional qualifications, work experience, your aims, your strengths, your hobbies, your achievements, and finally something about your family. YOU MUST TALK A LOT.
iF YOU ARE IN A GROUP. sTAND IN FRONT OF THE CROWD, TALK LOUDLY AND CONFIDENTLY. sTART WITH
